On the Incarnation (De Incarnatione Verbi Dei)


Published June 27, 2007


This plain, easy to understand book on Jesus' humanity and divinity, written by a passionate young priest from Alexandria heavily influenced by the desert monks and St. Anthony, was a bestseller in its time. It still holds up today.

It was also the first shot in the long fight of "Athanasius against the world", because Arius, a popular but over-the-hill priest and songwriter who was also from Alexandria, had his bestsellers, too. He claimed that Jesus was just another man, even if the most spiffy one God ever made, and his ideas would remain fashionable long after his death.

So Athanasius would spend most of his life in exile, on the run, and on the campaign trail for the concept that Jesus was true God and true man -- and this is the beginning of it all.

I must admit that it was not my choice to read this book. My professor in Systematic Theology required it. However, after listening, I can see why! This is a thorough, yet simple explanation on the incarnation of Christ. The work is not exceptionally long (I listened to it in a morning), and well read by the reader! Thank you so much for providing this!
